Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of Solid State and Mate­ri­als Phy­sics,

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Chair (W2) of Low-Tem­pe­ra­ture Phy­sics of Com­plex Elec­tron Sys­tems

For the Clus­ter of Excel­lence Com­ple­xity and Topo­logy in Quan­tum Mat­ter (ct.qmat), the Faculty of Phy­sics, Insti­tute of Solid State and Mate­ri­als Phy­sics, seeks to fill the
Chair (W2) of Low-Tem­pe­ra­ture Phy­sics of Com­plex Elec­tron Sys­tems
from June 1, 2022.

Work­ing field:

We are loo­king for a sci­en­tist who is able to com­pre­hen­si­vely rep­re­sent the field of “Expe­ri­men­tal Con­den­sed Mat­ter Phy­sics’’ in rese­arch and tea­ching. Your rese­arch should focus on the field of low-tem­pe­ra­ture phy­sics of novel topo­lo­gi­cal and cor­re­la­ted mate­ri­als. The chair is embed­ded into the Clus­ter of Excel­lence ct.qmat, in which phe­no­mena, mate­ri­als, and app­li­ca­ti­ons of topo­lo­gi­cal phy­sics are stu­died. If you can actively con­tri­bute to streng­t­he­ning this modern rese­arch area with a long-term per­spec­tive, e.g. via the inves­ti­ga­tion of bulk mate­ri­als at low tem­pe­ra­tures and in high magne­tic fields by means of trans­port mea­su­rements or magne­tic pro­bes, you ful­fill a cen­tral cri­ter­ion for being appoin­ted. In addi­tion to active rese­arch wit­hin ct.qmat, your par­ti­ci­pa­tion in other col­la­bo­ra­tive rese­arch activi­ties is expli­citly desi­red. There is the pos­si­bi­lity for close coope­ra­tion with the Inter­na­tio­nal Max Planck Rese­arch School for Che­mi­stry and Phy­sics of Quan­tum Mate­ri­als (IMPRS-CPQM). You will per­form tea­ching duties wit­hin the Faculty of Phy­sics with com­mit­ment. Your duties fur­ther­more include par­ti­ci­pa­tion in aca­de­mic self-admi­nis­tra­tion.


To be eli­gi­ble for the posi­tion, you need to have a doc­to­rate in phy­sics or a rela­ted disci­pline as well as a habi­li­ta­tion or habi­li­ta­tion-equi­va­lent achie­ve­ments in rese­arch and tea­ching. We fur­ther­more expect you to be fami­liar with acqui­ring third-party fun­ding and to be expe­ri­en­ced in pro­ject and group manage­ment. We place spe­cial empha­sis on top-class publi­ca­ti­ons, strong inter­na­tio­nal con­tacts, as well as inde­pendently acqui­red and suc­cess­fully con­duc­ted rese­arch pro­jects. You should be able to give cour­ses in both Ger­man and Eng­lish. Imme­diate pro­fi­ci­ency in Ger­man is not a pre­re­qui­site, but we expect you to acquire suf­fi­ci­ent lan­guage skills wit­hin a rea­son­able period of time to con­duct tea­ching and admi­nis­tra­tive tasks in Ger­man. App­li­cants must ful­fill the employ­ment qua­li­fi­ca­tion requi­re­ments of § 58 of the Act on the Auto­nomy of Insti­tu­ti­ons of Hig­her Edu­ca­tion in the Free State of Sax­ony (SächsHSFG).

What we of­fer:

For fur­ther ques­ti­ons, please con­tact the head of the appoint­ment com­mit­tee, Prof. Dr. Dmy­tro Ino­sov, phone +49 351 463-34731, email

TU Dres­den seeks to employ more female pro­fes­sors. Hence we par­ti­cu­larly encou­rage women to apply. App­li­ca­ti­ons from can­di­da­tes with disa­bi­li­ties or those requi­ring addi­tio­nal sup­port are very wel­come. The Uni­ver­sity is a cer­ti­fied family-fri­endly uni­ver­sity and offers a Dual Career Ser­vice. If you have any ques­ti­ons about these topics, please con­tact the Equal Oppor­tu­nities Offi­cer of the Faculty of Phy­sics (Prof. Dr. Ellen Hieck­mann, phone +49 351 463-36051) or the Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Employees with Disa­bi­li­ties (Mr. Roberto Lemm­rich, phone +49 351 463-33175).

About ct.qmat
The Clus­ter of Excel­lence is a joint pro­ject of Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den and Julius-Maxi­mi­li­ans-Uni­ver­si­tät Würz­burg, fun­ded through the Excel­lence Stra­tegy of the Ger­man Government since Janu­ary 2019. ct.qmat unites 200 sci­en­tists of both uni­ver­si­ties and five non-uni­ver­sity rese­arch insti­tu­tes from the areas of phy­sics, che­mi­stry, and mate­ri­als sci­ence. ct.qmat’s basic rese­arch aims to under­stand, design, and con­trol solid-state-based topo­lo­gi­cal sys­tems.

How to ap­ply:

Please sub­mit your app­li­ca­tion (inclu­ding a com­pre­hen­sive CV, a descrip­tion of your rese­arch inte­rests empha­si­zing achie­ve­ments and future goals, a list of publi­ca­ti­ons and of third-party-fun­ded pro­jects acqui­red, a com­pi­la­tion of cour­ses taught incl. the results of eva­lua­ti­ons, pre­fer­a­bly of the last three years, and a cer­ti­fied copy of the cer­ti­fi­cate of your hig­hest aca­de­mic degree) as hard copy to TU Dres­den, Dekan der Fakul­tät Phy­sik, Herrn Prof. Dr. Cars­ten Timm, Helm­holtz­str. 10, 01069 Dres­den, Ger­many until 17.05.2021 (stam­ped arri­val date of the uni­ver­sity cen­tral mail ser­vice app­lies) and as a sin­gle PDF file via the TU Dres­den Secu­re­Mail Por­tal to
